If named is dying, then there's something wrong with your named config file or the zone files. You can find out what named doesn't like by looking at /var/log/messages.

I happen to be in the US, Alabama to be specific.

It sounds like you've had some success. I don't know if there's a French edition or not, but "DNS and BIND", published by O'Reilly is considered to be the definitive reference on Bind. I highly recommend it to anyone that is going to be setting up and/or managing a DNS server.
